aboard! It must be beautiful there, Bob Seger country.

Congrats that is a nice new machine, you will be happy with it.
I have yet to use anything on my current machine, possibly because it has a painted steel chute that is still in good condition. Though I have had minor issues with late season heavy wet snow not flowing through as well which is to be expected. I seemed to have more of a need to do something on my mid '90's MTD polymer chute. I used to use silicone spray on that once a year and it worked very well. Fluid Film would be another option but a more costly one. I have heard that anti-stick cooking spray is a much more cost-effective remedy that is said to work very well.

No spray lubricant stays effective for long. Your best off using a spray like fluid film at the end of the season to prevent corrosion on non painted parts, and seal the painted stuff.

Adds a nice shine too.

I waxed/buffed mine with car wax. It's my first year with a snowblower so I have no idea how many uses I'll get out of one coating until it wears off.

I use Fluid Film on everything that is in direct contact with snow-in a pinch I use WD-40 but it needs to be reapplied more often.

You can spray the fluid film in several coats to coat the interior of the snow blower being the cross augers, the cross auger housing and the impeller and impeller housing and the chute and spout.

Making several coats of fluid film will let you apply it and then let it dry completely and then apply the second coat and let it dry and then the third coating and then you can always spray the impeller, impeller housing, the snow blower chute and spout as you work as they will have the most friction.

You can always just spray the chute and spout as you work as you will know when the snow blower will have difficulty and begin to plug.



The big tall cans of no stick spray from wally mart and the others are goods too but you need to coat it as you work as it does not stay as well as Fluid Film.

You would be well off getting a gallon of Fluid Film and a hand sprayer and you can dilute it in a fifty fifty mix and you will not have clogging problems.


Some of the folks use car wax on the chute and spout too so it depends on how much time you have I guess.

Hello Paulie139,

Was your doggy possessive of the new snow blower and hold it for a ransom of milk bones before he let you wax it??

LMAO - milk bones? No. It took an old Pirelli 245/45Z-R20 to lure him away.

What do I use? Absolutely nothing..
I tried a few things the first winter I had my snowblower, 9 years ago, and quickly realized that for me it was pointless and unnecessary..snowblower works fine without it.
